The Cantankerous Couple at the Movie

“Is that seat taken?” the elderly woman demanded, stopping at the end of each row.

She was in a crowded theatre, and the lighting was dim. It was hard to see, and the film was about to start.

She was obviously frustrated and a little dangerous…she had a cane.Cranky

“It’s being saved for someone,” she was told each time she asked.

“Selfish,” she responded.

Her companion was equally irate…and left her in order to shove his way into a saved seat, much to the astonishment of the people waiting for their friend.

Abandoned and angry, she headed down to the front row.

Ironically, the film they were trying to see was love story…a passionate, tragic love story.

Sometimes the drama on the screen is not nearly as dramatic as what happens in the audience.
